It is interesting to read that people from across the pond have a
feelings about 'that fantasy company'. I have recently been told of a	
rather nasty business practice thay have. It goes something like:

Get a local games shop to stock your product. When the sales of your   
product in that area via this shop reach a certain threshold set up your
own store just down the road and then stop supplying the local game
with your products.

Not a very friendly thing to do really. I gather this has been
in the courts in th US and declared illegal. I am no solicitor/lawyer
I think that is a fair judgement.

It would be great if a right minded business man was to set up a rival. 
There many things 'that fanatasy company'  do well. They supply
paint encourage games in their shops which are always clean tidy and
well laid out.

I only wish I had the backing as I would give it a go. There is money to
be made and at the moment it is almost all  going to one place.

No, GZG is a purely SF related company, Jon leaves fantasy to other   
(its just not his thing).

Great. How about posting it to the list soemtime or putting it on a Web
page somewhere?
